Abstract [en]
This essay focuses on language proficiency. The aim here is to answer the question: does bilingual education benefit the students' fluency in written English by reducing errors in the grammatical fields of articles and subject/verb concord? Swedish students find these areas difficult since there are no equivalences in their L1 language, assuming that their L1 language is Swedish. The comparison between the two schools chosen is a way to illustrate the differences in language proficiency in to two very similar upper secondary schools on the Swedish west coast. If there is, in fact, a language proficiency difference that is. The study can be looked upon as somewhat subjective, at least in the choices of the two schools involved. Nevertheless, the translation sentences used in the paper can be applied or used in further studies, which would make the conclusions found easy to substantiate. In conclusion one might say that from the point of view of this study it seems like the bilingual students are able to reduce their errors in written English.
